Flood events are probably underrepresented on the northern part of the world (North Russia and North Canada) because as they concern few people, they don't necessarily appear in the news reports. Among the different results, it is interesting to notice the importance of dam (or levy) break (or release) in the southern hemisphere, or the tremendous impact of monsoonal rain on the Ganges, Brahmaputra watershed. On this map main cause and secondary causes are represented, which explain why some floods have 2 different causes.
